Nordic Roots Dance project: Led by Kari Tauring, a Nordic Roots storyteller, singer, and teacher of the runes, stav (staff) rhythm and song. The program explores how the songs and dances, preserved within Minnesota's Norse Immigrant community, reflect and connect with their ancient roots and purpose in the community. These sessions are for all ages and all cultural heritages to enjoy. Joining Kari on this journey is dance instructor and Scandinavian tradition berrer, Carol Sersland, who's contribution to the program is grounded in authentic Immigrant Era traditions.
